    We made our way up the grandfather mountain trail. Repeatedly coming to snow and ice on the trail and signs warning that only experienced alpine hikers should continue. We evidentially felt experienced....











    We were met with numerous steep ladders up the nearly vertical rock face. It's as close to mountain climbing as hiking can get.







    Did I mention when we left that morning it was 9 degrees, so up here in the 40mph gusts it was very cold. But by the afternoon we had to strip some layers when we were on the backside of the mountain in the sun and out of the winds.

    luckily the trail is marked in blue blazes that are on the rocks and trees. Some of the trail just climbed straight up the rock with nothing but a blue blaze painted on it like the photo above.
